are smarter than mitt romney thinks and i think they're going to want to know the real facts. >> let's talk about virginia specifically here. this is a state where, where the race is extremely tight right now. the latest nbc news/"wall street journal," marist college poll showing 48% of likely voters supporting the president, 46% supporting governor romney. that's a virtual tie there. you can also see that governor romney gained two points from september. the president lost one. you are an expert of sorts on virginia politics. what does the president have to do to regain momentum in the commonwealth? >> well, i think he's got to keep focusing on what this means at the kitchen table in virginia. his plan is good for the middle class, romney raises taxes on the middle class. for current seniors and future seniors, what it means to have a strong defense, these are all going to be important issues here. the president's team has a much better ground game in the state. i think some of that movement is the base coming home to mitt romney. which is something you expect to happen. late in the cycle.

that the romney campaign want s out there. jack welch was talking about chicago-style number fixing. that would be one thing if these numbers were actually coming out of chicago. they're coming out of the bureau of labor statistics, where you have career professionals who do this job. these aren't political appointees. i think if anybody was cooking the books, you would pretty quickly have a whistle blower coming out of there, saying, hey, wait a second, these aren't the numbers. this is not something that's at all helpful for mitt romney, and it's generally not helpful for the level of intellect on our national discourse right now. >> you know, anne, i've been talking to people on both sides of this thing. let's clear it up right now. because this whole conspiracy, in my experience, in the past 24 hours, has been met with a collective eye roll from people who are democrats and republicans. is there any way the obama administration could actually have cooked up these numbers? >> uh, in a short answer, i would say no. i think the last president who was accused of, and where there was evidence th

how he can apply them to the ryan/romney ticket as a whole. what they really would like to do is talk a lot about those ryan fiscal policies. things like kucutting spending, reforming medicare, looking at social security. what biden would like to do is talk a lot about those issues. one issue for the vice president, he hasn't been doing a lot of interviews or interactions with reporters. he hasn't really been questioned on a lot of the claims he makes about the ryan budget on the campaign trail. so it's going to be sort of a new thing for him to be questioned by reporters by the moderator, and by the candidate himself on the claims he's making on how those budget policies would impact everyday americans. >> a lot was said four years ago about joe biden's debate with sarah palin. now, he has known congressman ryan for quite some time. they have dealt together. how do you expect the tone to be different? >> well, remember, four years ago, biden had really one big challenge. he didn't want to make any major mistakes. but his only really great big challenge in that debate was sarah palin

that level of detail of governor romney and the president just fine. >> susan, talk about the rhetoric that karen brings up. foreign policy certainly fair game topics of three debates. the vice presidential, two remaining presidential debates. when's the strategy behind today's speech from mitt romney? is he laying a pillar, a foundation of his campaign that may have been tampered with especially as jen brings up going overseas and kind of offended the relationship with british? >> well, the statement of the president's team is very disturbing i think because it's really beyond the pale. you don't go that far before you hear the speech. people don't want to hear that kind of discussion right now. they want to hear about substantive issues and therein i agree with karen and up to governor romney to deliver that but this is a great time politically for the governor to have this speech. he's had a great debate. the speech when the president, there's an opening to attack the president on foreign policy. he's still hurt on the benghazi issue. there's room for him to grow there so that's als

that mitt romney before. coming up, we'll talk to a person who says she debated that mitt romney back in 2002, massachusetts democrat shannon o'brien. >>> sky-high, the price of gas hits an all-time record in california. will the rest of the nation follow? we'll get a live report. >> i'm going to show you how to make a wad of paper. a wad of paper can be a lot of fun, just to play with around the house or maybe toss expertly into a trash can. >> and later, yes, ladies and gentlemen, that is steve martin, but what is the star of "stage and screen" doing in this internet video? the answer is ahead, you're watching msnbc. new prilosec otc wildberry is the same frequent heartburn treatment as prilosec otc. now with a fancy coating that gives you a burst of wildberry flavor. now why make a flavored heartburn pill? because this is america. and we don't just make things you want, we make things you didn't even know you wanted. like a spoon fork. spray cheese. and jeans made out of sweatpants. so grab yourself some new prilosec otc wildberry.

looked into the camera and addressed us. and mitt romney didn't do that. >> i like how obama talked about the middle class. i personally don't know any millionaires. and there is a lot more of us, the middle class. >> reporter: the two latino women there said they were leaning toward the president, the exact group of voters he hopes will help him win this state. on the other hand, some supporters may be slipping away. >> made a lot of promises four years ago. and we've had four years to watch a lot of that not happen. >> you voted for obama last time? >> yes. i'm a lot more suspicious and guarded. >> the question i have is four years really enough to follow through on these promises. can all of president obama's promises he made four years ago really be done in four years? >> what do you think? is four years enough? >> i don't think so. >> reporter: and they all wish they'd had a fact checker standing by to sort through the flurry of claims and counter claims. is romney really not seeking a $5 trillion tax cut? will people be able to keep their health insurance under the president's plan?

is can the romney campaign erode president obama's lead there? joining me now to talk about it, david skonik. he was at that rally this morning. reporter for the cincinnati enquirer. good afternoon to both of you. >> thank you. >> the romney campaign reportedly shifting campaign resources from another battleground state, pennsylvania to ohio. david, again, you are at that rally in youngstown today. do you see anything in the crowds that shows a new wave of support for the republican ticket? >> actually, i do. i think that there is -- ryan has actually been able to really garner a lot of enthusiasm during his events. and this morning i tracked about 14,000 people to a place that is a democratic stronghold right there in downtown youngstown. i do see people paying a lot closer attention to this race. and i'm seeing there is some movement. now obviously northeast ohio is super democratic stronghold. i think -- i mean -- >> and for folks not familiar with the geography of ohio, you're speaking primarily of cleveland? >> cleveland, akron, canton, warren, youngstown, which are all heavy dem

in romney's trajectory toward pennsylvania avenue? i mean, this strategy, talking about big bird. >> yeah, well, look at it this way, the debate was so dispiriting for the president's base that, you know, this is the one thing when you played the clip of the president making the big bird joke, what happened? tons of laughter. this is something that i'm sure the campaign realizes the base likes it, it gets them re-energized and refocused, and keep in mind -- >> doesn't it remind them, though, of what a stinky debate it was for president obama? i mean, doesn't it take you back to all of this, that this was a lackluster performance for a man who wants to keep his job? >> right, yes, so it was a lack buster performance and there's no getting around it. you can't pretend that that debate didn't happen, but you've got to do something to remind, to sort of get the voter, to get your base wound up again. because remember, this is a base election. whichever person, whichever candidate can get his base out to the polls, that's going to be the margin of victory. and with regard to the swing state po

disaster, president obama's talking about why he lost round one. >> that debate, what happened? >> well, governor romney had a good night. i had a bad night. >> how bad? >> well, it's not the first time i've had a bad night, but i think what's important is that the fundamentals of what this race is about haven't changed. >> one debate down. the vp showdown just hours away. a new poll today shows mitt romney makes gains in three key swing states. romney flips the script in virginia, now leading by one point. the fight for florida is a statistical dead heat. and romney has narrowed the gap this ohio, although the buckeye state, what every republican needs to win the white house, is still solidly in obama's corner. >> this is the conversation we were having before both conventions. so almost as everything has been erased. >> i think it accounts for the hemorrhaging that they let romney back in. >> joining me now is ed schultz host of the ed show. and let's start with this. congressman ryan as well as the chairman both trying to set the stage for tonight. let's listen. >> joe biden's been o

this morning. i want to point out this. we are going to talk about arkansan president. >> break out the pimento cheese. >> palmetto cheese? >> forgive me, i'm sorry. >> he's from baltimore. he's all orioles. >> to answer your question, this is a simple fact. mitt romney lied on the stage last wednesday. and bill clinton called him out on it. that's ironic and i won't say why. but the bottom lewin is that the president -- barnicle was right this morning on "morning joe." the president didn't look very presidential. he has a chance, two chances, to recover. vice president needs to boot him into it and that's what we are looking for. bill clinton is right. he has to call him on it. >> one other thing, first lady michelle obama was able to use the "sesame street" line and do so in a far more serious way than her husband did. at least what critics are saying. are we going to see a lot more of the first lady, bill clinton, bringing that kind of heat, is that enough to help the president's team dig itself out of that post-debate hole? >> you know, i think -- it certainly does help the first lady has a

as what is talking about, his rally in indianapolis at the moment. today joe and jill biden stump in ryan's home state of wisconsin. mitt romney holds a rally in virginia before joining forces with ryan in ohio. the president weighed in on biden's performance before boarding air force one. >> i thought joe biden was terrific tonight. i could not be prouder of him. i thought he made a strong case. >> mike viqueira joins me live from the white house. politico roger simon wrote this, "whatever joe biden was drinking thursday night, barack obama ought to order a case of it." when you look at that, is there more pressure on the president to be like biden now? >> it's ironic you would ask that because the idea was biden was going to take pressure off the president by giving the base, the democrat base the most ardent supporters a little red meat for their appetite, that that appetite left unsateed. the president will leave here tomorrow on the weekend heading south of williamsburg, virginia. another training camp, debate camp for the next several days in williamsburg. obviously choosing virgini
